Best Antivirus Rescue Disks

No comments

A lot of top antivirus providers provide a free bootable recovery disk that can be used to clean your computer after it has been infected. These are Linux-based tools that can be used to clean the computer of malware if it won’t start up or isn’t scanned by a standard antivirus program running on Windows. I would recommend the Kaspersky disc for its simplicity of use (though it may not work on certain Dell systems).

You can also find similar features on the Avira or ESET rescue disks, which have an interface with a graphic design, but require the use of a USB/CD device to start. Both options are able to analyze and detect malware on your PC, but their virus definitions aren’t updated as frequently as Linux-based rescue disks.

The Trend Micro Rescue Disk is another excellent choice. It’s also one of the smallest disks on this list, with a size of around 70MB. It doesn’t come with a graphic user interface but it does work quickly and offers several customization options including the capability to mount and scan specific volume volumes, files and even individual folders.

Additionally, you can obtain a good virus scan from the Comodo rescue disk even though it’s not as flexibility of the options for Linux above. It’s an extremely effective tool for detecting and eliminating the kind of viruses that hide in Windows files, which prevents detection by antivirus software that is normally used. You can use either a text-only or full-graphic interface. You can also conduct a smart scan or a custom scan.
